Now that we have some production molds to work with we can start pouring our slip.
After the determined casting time we drain the slip and prop our molds on the drying table. These tubtrugs are super handy for slip and for plaster, we highly recommend them.
If the cup in the mold has a handle you'll probably want to drain the mold so the drain stream flows out over the handle, lessening the dimple inside the mug.
After removal from the mold and some preparation we glaze the greenware in our spray booth.
Then we load the kiln...
These are the same cups, after firing, unloading, decaling, reloading and decal firing.
Look at this shrinkage!
